religious groups. in our guidance we also made it clear while we don't have jurisdiction over religion in the same way we don't over sexual orientation, what we're seeing in all of these -- and all of these are case by case, you can't just broad sweep the laws -- when students are bullied and harassed in this world because of religion, in most instances a lot of that is not about race or religion, it's because. perception that students that share certain religious traits also share certain ethnicities and that is discrimination and that falls under title 6. it is not just about enforcing the laws that make it clear how the laws apply. it is, though, as we said, you can't get at this through enforcement alone. this is a culture that tolerates this and in too many ways promotes it. as tom mentioned we have an unprecedented partnership not just between our agencies but agencies across the federal government that the president has convened to bring our best resources and minds to bear to do something about it. there is now a web site, stopbullying.gov where a tool kit is being developed
parents like that. very modern. very open-minded. unlike for some, there's no question of religion, of color of skin, or anything like that. people can be all beautiful. it depends on who they are, but it is not a question of color. for me, both of us were beautiful. and i loved color. color of the skin. tattoo on the skin, which is a kind of color. some blue colors that you add. and i wanted to show that. when i started, i remember that there were some beautiful girls. they're beautiful. but i felt like, ok, but there is also beauty. i have a girlfriend which was modeling for me that i met very early when i started that was from a french colony. she was beautiful and black and very inspiring, very nice. i say, yes, why not. for me, a difference was beautiful. they looked to me, and i wanted to show it. another kind of different was the fact that when i saw farida, i said, my god, she is incredible. i was very impressed by her beauty. very frightened even by her beauty. she was kind of a very arrogant imperial. and african and beauty with a special expression. not arrogant. but bea
christianity is treated in the media, and in canada, to even say anything against another religion is considered hate speech in some cases. with our message of talking about christians being persecuted, mentioning the purpersecutors can even get us in trouble. i would say it is all right here. >> wendy: we're seeing islamic islamics intensifying. you have a bible that was stained in blood from nigeria. tell us the story. >> i got this bible last spring. and a year ago, in january of last year, there was an attack on a church in a place called gombay city in gombay state. a group called the boko haram, and i know you have reported many times on that islamic group. they went into the deeper life bible church, and three young men from the boko haram opened fire on the christians, and killed 10 people. two young boys were killed -- >> wendy: the person who owns this bible, they survived? >> yes. his name was youkuba, and he was shot in the waist area, and his blood is on the bible. when the shooting occurred, they had been praying for the boko haram. >> wendy: and they're tied to al-qa

independent appeal. islamic in our short discussion we talk about religion. what do you say to people that think republicans are fundamental christians that are out of touch in society? >> being a graduate student in religious studies i have a lot to say about that in this book and we find the most offensive characterization of republicans or any group of people to call christians or the christian right fanatics or extremists. i think that we go through a lot of statistics about how christian republicans are. on the christians from the left sometimes from the media come sometimes from hollywood, because it almost comes off feeling scared like they are frightened if you talk about intelligent design and which is basically evolution with god, it's almost like why are you taking my science a way? the science estes' there. it's absolutely there. it feels a little threatened and i don't understand what is so threatening were dangerous about the churchgoer. it's a religious country in the religious world. it's a 198% of the world's population crazy as really out of touch and a lot of time s

religious does not just mean that you be religious on sundays. we have privatized religion to such a great extent here. some of us may be obsessed about this issue. we talk about freedom and religious freedom and conscience -- my sense is most of america has no idea what we are talking about. i think we have different senses of what freedom is. maybe freedom means increased access to contraception. how do we get a common vocabulary again? >> that is a great question. on the freedom of conscience and religious liberty, that was about a year ago as well, i think the left really feared that percolating. that is why they turned into an argument about contraception. i have to out fear your fear. i have to out celebrity your liberty. -- out-liberty your liberty. if we start each sentence with a question -- is it fair that the government, and then fill in the blank with anything you want. worshipu you can't your god. else you that you can't send your kid to a better school. is it fair that the government tells you that you can't run that business? basically, it is what they do without saying it.

. this is the history of africa and it goes back a couple of centuries. but today, to be a follower of the religion is to earn a death sentence in certain parts of nigeria. and of course, christians respond in kind with their colleagues in reprisal. put that level of intolerance based on ignorance has raised that such a pitch that if you open the papers at any time in nigeria of the church has been burned down, worshipers machine gunned, a mosque was burned down and worshipers were bombed out of existence. even within the muslim religion there are different grades of purity. one side considers the other not sufficient so therefore deserving of criminal censorship. but then i jeers censorship never has one single issue that leads to total destabilization of society. >> booktv is here at the national press club author night joining us now is the author of a first cameraman. what is your association with the obama administration? >> in 2008 on the campaign i was a personal videographer that i carried through the first two and a half years of the white house. the last cycle i did not work on the campai
religion, but particularly islam, there's not always a clear understanding to what the first amendment guarantees, which is the right to teach about a religion but not proselytize about it. i think there's fear of associating with anyone associated with islam. there are events outside our control that creates more interest and unfortunately also makes people more afraid. one of the programs we are about to launch is putting all our content online so a teacher in north dakota where there are no muslim, potentially, no expert can come to her classroom, they can go to our web site and download the content and teach the things we are teaching. >> i think partnerships are the best way to overcome the limitations because we all have limitations. and sometimes it's just visibility. we actually have on our web site 50 short films and one of them is a muslim student from a school in fremont going to a school in arinda talking about what it's like going to school as a muslim in the united states and they are asking questions and you see we are all kids in school and we have more similaritie
